GPAC Women’s Final Set

GPAC Women’s Final Set

The 2013 Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) Postseason Women’s Soccer Tournament completed semifinal round play on Tuesday as the number one and two seeds each hosted games.

In Sioux City, Iowa, on Tuesday afternoon the top seeded Mustangs and #4 Midland played to a 1-1 tie through two overtimes.  Morningside won the shootout with a 4-2 advantage on penalty kicks. On Tuesday night in Hastings, Nebraska, second seed Hastings was a 3-0 winner over #6 seed Concordia.  The wins set up a one versus two seed final with Morningside hosting Hastings on Friday night at 6pm.  Earlier this year Morningside defeated Hastings 1-0 in 2OT at Hastings in the conference opener for both schools.

The winner of the GPAC Tournament will advance, as the league’s only automatic representative, to the NAIA National Women’s Soccer National Championship Opening Round (on Saturday, November 23).  The GPAC is allotted one automatic berth because the conference is below 12 NAIA teams in the postseason (10 teams).    Sixteen teams will advance to the NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship Final Site in Orange Beach, Alabama, December 2 – December 7, 2012, at the Orange Beach SportsPlex.
